Sorry misunderstood the question.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Sue and thank you also... crawgarden

I just want to learn where to find for myself the info needed on that series _______________and
tm line_________________so that I can upload and add a new plant to the data base ...
I have the tag that came on my plant from the nursery their price and tag I bought it
and I have a tag that is from the grower or distributor in front of me...but I have no idea how to make this easy for me to fill out the blanks and submit a new plant to your data base..
so thanks.. for help Sue ..when you can walk me through in an elementary lesson on it

Always check the database first to see if it's already there, I just typed two words in the database search, 'buzz sky' and it was the only entry that popped up.

Keep your search as simple as possible, as I did above, 'buzz sky' or 'Butterfly Bush sky', or 'Buddleja Buzz', (buddleia is incorrect)

The basics are genus and cultivar name is all that is needed. Admin will do any corrections. We often have to search for the any trade or series. The asterisk does not mean that you have to put something in that field.
Most likely anything you purchase though is already in the database so it won't be often that you need to add a new plant.
